Most therapists use art and images to aid the therapeutic process, this is integrated into their practice as a counsellor, psychotherapist, psychologist or therapeutic professional grounded in their own approach.
The course is designed to help professionals work ethically and safely with art and images in therapeutic practice.

Participants have the option of obtaining a CPD attendance only certificate or in completing a 2000 word written assessment they are eligible for the Introductory Certificate in working with art & images in psychotherapeutic practice.

The course itself is highly 'experiential' in nature. However, this certificate does not qualify participants as an Art Therapist.
To qualify as an Art Psychotherapist you have to be trained and registered with the HCPC. The completion of the Introductory Certificate does NOT imply that you can practice Art Psychotherapy or advertise yourself as an Art Psychotherapist.

The course is open to participants from a variety of backgrounds and experiences
however, participants must be experienced and firmly grounded in their own orientation to clinical practice.
The Course Facilitator is happy to discuss individual applications.
